The Department of Visual Arts, Theatre Department, and Music Department together comprise the School of Performing and Visual Arts for Gardner-Webb University
Visual Arts offers three degree programs, the BA in Art, BFA, and the BA in Art with Teacher Licensure
Art students study ceramics, painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, design and art history.
In-depth study in selected studio concentrations allow students to develop an independent artistic voice
The annual undergraduate exhibit, all studio critique, and themed shows give students many opportunities to exhibit their work.
Art majors are required to mount a senior exhibition and present a thesis of their final work.
Our classes are small enough to devote individual attention to your development as an artist.
The visual art department welcomes all skill levels into our foundation courses.
We invite you to schedule a visit to the department through our administrative assistant using the "Contact Us" link above.
